Capsticks is the healthcare employment law firm of choice, with the largest dedicated employment team in this sector in the UK. Our lawyers have an unrivalled understanding of the working practices and legal rules that operate in the healthcare market. Because of our expertise in the healthcare sector, we have entered into a ground-breaking partnering arrangement with NHS Employers, who recognise the benefits of using Capsticks.

We advise clients at all levels, including the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS Employers and the National Clinical Assessment Service, as well as a full range of acute trusts, mental health trusts, private healthcare providers and health and social care charities. As we don't have the steep learning curve that other non-specialised firms face when dealing with health and social care employers, we work comfortably and easily alongside your internal team from day one.


As one of the country’s leading healthcare law firms, Capsticks has an unparalleled 360 degree view of the NHS and wider sector landscape.

Our healthcare property team has over 30 years’ experience of advising the NHS, who holds one of the largest estates in the country. We have specialists across all key areas including development, sales and acquisitions, estate and asset management, property joint ventures, disputes, planning and construction. Healthcare clients also have a complete range of commercial property requirements including land sales to all the major house builders, commercial offices and many new hospital developments. We have extensive experience in acting for PPP and PFI healthcare schemes.

We understand the significant financial pressures facing the healthcare sector and our legal solutions are always delivered with this in mind. We will invest time getting to know your organisation inside out, so that our advice is always given in context and practical.
